Looking East at the Pest side of the Danube waterfront. Photo was made from the Fishermens Bastion on the Palace Hill. Margaret Island (Margit Sziget) at the far left. Parliament at the center. Chain bridge (Lanc Hid) is the first bridge to the right (south) of Parliament.


The dynamic range of light due to the sun setting behind me was a big issue. The Hill I was on shadowed the foreground with the setting sun. Expose a stop or 2 lower and risk overexposing Parliament? Made even more difficult as the shadows were approaching Pest as the sun was setting. With the camera panning left to right the foreground shadows deepen going towards the right. Is the striping g due to vignetting? Pls comment as I thought vignetting was usually present at wide rather than telephoto settings. This pano has diffraction limited resolution due to F8 aperture and sensor size.
